Notes & Reviews:

For her debut recording on Onyx, acclaimed Israeli soprano Chen Reiss has chosen a program of arias by Cimarosa, Haydn, Salieri and Mozart - all composers working in Vienna in the 1780s. Featured here are some of the 'insertion' arias by Haydn and Mozart, composed for use in operas by other composers such as Amfossi, Gugliemi and Martin - forgotten names today. So here, we have liaisons on stage - secret marriages and affairs, and liaisons between composers.

"What a stimulating assemblage of arias, and in intelligent, standard-setting performances...Unexpected insights arrives at every turn...Reiss makes [Salieri and Cimarosa] feel like worthy companions, always looking to find their specific character and never falling into soubrette cuteness...My favourite moment is how wonderstruck her Susanna sounds while absorbing the beauties of the night in the Act 4 Figaro aria." -Gramophone

"Reiss has an agile, bell-bright, fluty timbre that's well suited to the soubrette and coloratura repertoire here. She's best in the showy numbers - the glittering roulades of the Mozart concert aria 'Ah se in ciel' and Salieri's 'Tremo bell'idol mio' are bright and fresh. She also displays a lovely line in the short, sweet 'Quando la rosa'" -Classic FM

"Reiss is a properly pert Despina (Cosi) and an affecting Susanna...Her attention to detail in the recitative is scrupulous...Reiss's diamond bright coloratura is a mighty weapon...All told, this is a beguiling combination of top-drawer musicianship and fresh ideas about opera in Enlightenment Vienna." -BBC Music
